“Fun concert venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

We enjoyed attending several music concerts here. Great people, pretty decent venue (although you're in the dirt) - - - parking very easy & organized. Lots of nice people around to help out - some grass would be nice, but hey, takes too much water to keep it green.

“Twisted is right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

First of all take the dirt road up to the winery instead of the paved road it adds a little more twisted to your visit. Of course everybodys taste in wine is different so for me I liked some of their whites and thought the reds were too dry for me. The view from the winery is fantastic looking east you can still see snow capped mountains in June. Overall experience was fun here.

“Experience better than the wine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

This was one of the several wineries I visited in the area and provided a good overall experience. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was upbeat and fun. Overall, I thought the quality of the wines was mixed. Some were above average, while others were not all that good. Everyone I spoke to at this winery was in a good mood and having a good time, so definitely 5* for atmosphere, but the wines left a little to be desired.

“truly a fun place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The fun aspect sets this place apart. But don't be fooled - the wine is spectacular. Mostly warm climate varietals - all good. Join the wine club and get a rubber chicken!

“Both great wines & a sense of humor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We enjoyed the wines at all of the area wineries we visited, but I think Twisted Oak was probably our favorite!!! All of the wines we sampled were unique, different, delicious and well priced. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, well informed with no pressure to purchase a wine. I love their sense of humor - take the gravel driveway to read the signs or simply visit their website.
